The creation of an Institutional Fee Schedule (UUSOP-13) represents a significant step in establishing a standardized cost structure when participating in industry sponsored research. Fee standardization within the University of Utah promotes consistency and assists research teams in adhering to proper research billing compliance.
The Fee Schedule is supplemented by a Cost Structure Rationale (UUSOP-13-A), which describes the activities and items included in the fees.
Together, these documents empower researchers to anticipate costs in conducting industry sponsored research and to develop a successful cost analysis and budget negotiation.
Additional guidance and trainings have been developed to support researchers in following the Institutional Fee Schedule, which are included in the “Materials Required” and “References” sections of these SOPs.
